The U.S. Department of Agriculture has replaced the food pyramid with a more user-friendly plate icon to help Americans make healthy food choices.
They wanted to know what your ideal plate looks like. CNN’s Eatocracy editor, Kat Kinsman, created her version, which consists of some not-so-healthy helpings of fried okra, cherry pie, cheese grits, pulled pork, and a glass of scotch.
So, health repercussions aside, show us what your ‘MyPlate’ would look like. Turn your plate into a piece of art and send it to CNN iReport . Your plate may be featured on Eatocracy, so let’s get creative! .............. WAS the assignment in CNN iReport, so even I tried my luck by sending them "What an ideal vegetarian well balanced plate looks like in actual and graphic representation, COME CHECK HOW MYPLATE LOOKS LIKE. Will post the pictures in the next post.
MyCityCuisine.org, a Wiki project dedicated to helping answer the question 'What Should I Order?', is currently looking for contributors!!
